Looking in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see crowded teeth, gapped teeth, crossbite, an over or underbite? If the answer is yes to any of these, then you may be eligible for treatment with Invisalign in Ipswich. Invisalign is a treatment that uses aligners to push the teeth into the correct position over a period of approximately 6 to 18 months on average. It is used to treat milder alignment issues and is considered a more convenient and comfortable method for patients than some other braces. The great thing about Invisalign, as its name suggests, is that when the aligners are being worn, they should be virtually invisible and only the teeth should be noticeable through the transparent plastic from which the aligners are made.
Why would I choose Invisalign?
If you are looking for a discreet way to realign your teeth in a time-efficient manner, then Invisalign could be the treatment you’re looking for. There is a special range for teenagers called Invisalign Teen, and the other aligners are suitable for adults. The aligners being discreet should give patients the confidence to wear them no matter what they are doing. However, you are able to remove your aligners for a couple of hours every day, which means that you can remove them when you are eating, drinking and cleaning your teeth. You should also have time to have them out for other things, such as playing sports or meeting up with friends. The choice and flexibility is left with the patients to decide!
There are also obvious benefits to realigning your teeth. Aesthetically, your teeth will look better and you can have a beautiful smile thanks to this treatment. However, there are many health benefits too. With misaligned teeth, it can lead to difficulties in cleaning them properly, as well as chewing and speaking easily. By realigning your smile, you could resolve all of these issues, as well as reducing any jaw pain you may have had due to your misaligned teeth.
Another major benefit of choosing Invisalign is the fact that the aligners are made bespoke to fit your mouth. Dentists use a digital scan with iTero technology to get the measurements of your mouth in order to have your aligners made. From this, they can also show you a video of what your teeth will look like after your treatment has finished, before you’ve even begun to wear your aligners that will sit snug on your gum line. It can be a really motivating experience to see what the results of your treatments are going to be, before you’ve even started wearing the aligners and it can help to motivate you to wear your aligners, should you need a little bit of extra encouragement!
